Today’s Writing Prompt: Personalizing headlines about agency secrets

Today’s writing prompt is based on a real headline from last week. The headline is: Ex-C.I.A. Engineer Convicted in Biggest Theft Ever of Agency Secrets. Write fiction, but base your writing for today on this headline. And write from the first-person point of view so that you can personalize what you write. You can write from the point of view of the agent, or maybe from the perspective of the spouse of the C.I.A. agent, or their co-worker, etc.

Tip for completing today’s writing prompt:

If you don’t like this headline, find another headline to base your writing on for today. Use the headline to inspire your creativity. But try to personalize what you write to emphasize the fact that there are real people behind real headlines.
